Baja and Copper Canyon Guided Motorcycle Tour

Our Baja and Copper Canyon motorcycle tour is a real riding vacation. From the magnificent Copper Canyon train ride to the beaches of the Baja Peninsula this tour can be summed up in one word…FUN!

 

The Baja & Copper Canyon Tour is on paved roads throughout. This is a favourite with couples, bringing together the adventure of foreign touring, the romance of beachside resorts, the fascination of encountering indigenous peoples, the charm of Colonial Mexico and the awesome land feature of the Copper Canyon. Starting on the mainland of Mexico, riders will reach the Baja Peninsula by way of overnight ferry from Mazatlan to La Paz. Each day you can look forward to a new experience. An added bonus during the months of January and February is a guided excursion for an up close look at the grey whales. This is a tour with balance and moderate pace, lending to the holiday nature of the ride. Early bookings recommended.
